Do you have a slow cooker???
I use mine all the time even in the summer and I would highly recommend getting one!!
You can throw all your ingredients in in the morning and then come home to a lovely dinner, reducing the chance of you hitting the chip shop on the way home as you are too tired to cook!
PS: Exciting times on Monday as my KSFL Dance package starts plus my 7 Day Online Juice Detox and I start a brand new BlockFit class on Monday nights!!!!!
